About 3 kilograms of heroin have been seized, valued at several
million rubles on the black market, he said at a press conference at
Interfax’s Tomsk press center.
“Three kilograms is a large amount. A bigger batch of drugs has never
been seized in the region before. It is sufficient to make up to 50
kilograms of ready-to-use drugs, or 500,000 doses, and sell them to
retail buyers,” Tolstonosov said.
The channel was being monitored for several months. The organizer and
his accessory from Novosibirsk traveled to Kyrgyzstan and reached a
deal with local drug barons for the purchase and delivery of drugs to
Russia. The two received the drugs when they returned to Novosibirsk and
took a taxi to travel to the Tomsk region.
